I just recently rid my computer of spylocked. I did notice however that 3 days (it was fine for first 2 or 3 days) or so after getting this twisted scam virus that my control alt del window was changed to nothing more than a simple square window with no tabs and no more processes shown running in the background. They're still there ofcourse, as I could see them with Scotty the Patrol dog. All my window shows now is the current program I may be running I.e. Olivion or Command and Conquer :thumbsup: and I can shut those down...but that's it. It's like the programming for my Ctrl Alt Del window was intentionally rewritten so that I couldn't see what was running. Weird. Anyway, I am sure I am 100% free of spylocked, I just think maybe it opened the door for something else, like a worm or virus. None of the other antivirus/spyware programs I have ran will detect it though. I have tried Avg anti-rootkit, Remove it pro v4, Vcleaner, GData's Remover, the Stinger to name a few as well as a few antispyware programs. My hope is that someone will be familiar with what may have happened, as, if I can identify the virus, I can purge it. 4 all I know I changed something myself by accident, though I doubt it. BTW, my OS is XP. Thanks for any help recieved.

Try double-clicking the gray border in the task manager.


Lets see what happens.

And, that's why I'm here. "You're a Genius...A GENIUS!!!" well that's a little embarrassing. I wondered, if that was the case, but I couldn't get it to change back. Who would've guessed. It was the double-click virus. Well problem solved. AND FAST. thank you. "laughs at self" :thumbsup:))
